Post-Master’s Certificate in Project Management
Modern business projects are complex and challenging, requiring a fine balance between meeting user needs, sticking to allocated budgets, optimizing resources, staying within scope, maintaining quality, and completing tasks on time. Without a structured approach to all these factors, it becomes nearly impossible to deliver a successful project. The right techniques and methods can reduce costs, improve efficiencies, enhance customer and stakeholder satisfaction, and create a competitive advantage for your business. For these reasons, project management is now one of the fastest growing professional disciplines in business.
This graduate-level specialization is designed for administrative and management professionals who want to become proficient project managers. You’ll focus on applying principles, concepts, tools, and techniques to improve project performance and organizational effectiveness. The coursework provides both strategies and training for planning, project control, leadership, improving teamwork performance, and delivering projects on time and on budget.

Successful completion and attainment of National University degrees do not lead to automatic or immediate licensure, employment, or certification in any state/country. The University cannot guarantee that any professional organization or business will accept a graduate’s application to sit for any certification, licensure, or related exam for the purpose of professional certification.
Program availability varies by state. Many disciplines, professions, and jobs require disclosure of an individual’s criminal history, and a variety of states require background checks to apply to, or be eligible for, certain certificates, registrations, and licenses. Existence of a criminal history may also subject an individual to denial of an initial application for a certificate, registration, or license and/or result in the revocation or suspension of an existing certificate, registration, or license. Requirements can vary by state, occupation, and/or licensing authority.
NU graduates will be subject to additional requirements on a program, certification/licensure, employment, and state-by-state basis that can include one or more of the following items: internships, practicum experience, additional coursework, exams, tests, drug testing, earning an additional degree, and/or other training/education requirements.
All prospective students are advised to review employment, certification, and/or licensure requirements in their state, and to contact the certification/licensing body of the state and/or country where they intend to obtain certification/licensure to verify that these courses/programs qualify in that state/country, prior to enrolling. Prospective students are also advised to regularly review the state’s/country’s policies and procedures relating to certification/licensure, as those policies are subject to change.
National University degrees do not guarantee employment or salary of any kind. Prospective students are strongly encouraged to review desired job positions to review degrees, education, and/or training required to apply for desired positions. Prospective students should monitor these positions as requirements, salary, and other relevant factors can change over time.
